What is International Women’s Day?

International Women's Day History and Gift Ideas

In the early 1900s, in order to celebrate the growing role of women in the political and working world, countries everywhere established a holiday dedicated to showing appreciation for females everywhere! The decision to make this an official holiday came in 1910, during the second International Conference of Working Women in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Today, the holiday is celebrated by showering all of the women in your life – wives, sisters, daughters, granddaughters, mothers, friends, coworkers – in gifts and sentiments of appreciation. Like Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day, the most popular gifts come in the form of flowers or chocolate.
